On this episode of Students of Mind, Jayde is joined by Aubrey Howard (she/her) for an in-depth background on psychedelics—the first in a series of talks on psychedelics. Aubrey provides a thorough explanation of the history of psychedelics and other plant medicines as well as what she and many are calling the psychedelic renaissance. Throughout this discussion we learn about some ancient traditions involving these medicines done by indigenous peoples, Aubrey’s personal journey, how this alternative method of healing works, who can benefit, the history of psychedelics in the west, how the war on drugs has harmed this movement as well as the BIPOC community, and so much more.
Aubrey Howard is a somatic breathwork and psychedelic assisted therapy facilitator based in Philadelphia. She places a big focus on honoring indigenous practices while supporting BIPOC individuals through the work that she does. Aubrey's talk with Jayde is one of the best overviews on the history of psychedelics available that truly pays homage to the roots of the practice.
